what am i going to wear to alt? i'm sure it's been weighing on your mind. it has been on mine too. here are some possibilities that might be making their way into my suitcase. i don't really have a style. i don't like to paint myself with a certain brush because i like so many different styles. i guess if you took anthropologie, jcrew, and the thrift store, just to add a little funk and put them in a jar and shook them up, the end result would be my style. i feel silly even saying that, "my style". i'm sure that's a sign i'm getting old!
outfit one: lauren moffatt lace shorts, jcrew school boy blazer, jcrew chambray perfect shirt (my beautiful and fun friend bianca picked up the button-down at the thrift store!)
it's rare for me to wear heels, but i feel like they are appropriate for the occasion.
heels: nine west ( i bought mine at nordies rack but here is something similar, but with a pointy heel)
it's going to be chilly and i'm stoked that i get to wear some of my cold weather wear that hides in my closet most of the time. i've had this coat since i was in high school! it is one of my "collector pieces"... i bought it at the salvation army and i will never, ever, get rid of it. it is beautiful. they don't make coats like this anymore.
another "collector item", this leather jacket i've also had for about a million years. i love it more than the wool coat above. the collar and silhouette are AWESOME, and the way the leather has aged can't be matched today. i got it for free at crossroads trading company. i went in to sell some of my clothes and saw this baby on a rack. i think i actually got the jacket for free and some cash too for the clothes i brought in.
outfit two: paige premium purple jeans (i bought mine at nordies rack. they had one pair in my size in this color), jcrew perfect shirt
a belt that goes both ways!
belt: anthro (i bought this on clearance and they don't have anymore. this belt is similar)
there is a white party on the agenda and i've been freaking out about it. i don't do head to toe all one color. plus, i like color! one can never have too many white tanks or tees, but an entire outfit in white, ugh, i kinda have a hard time with it. this is what i've come up with. it's the best i can do.
can you tell i love the belt? so sparkly!
i'm not sure what i'm going to wear these with yet, but they are coming out. guess how much they cost? are you ready for it? $3.95. they are in perfect condition!
heels: thrift store
herringbone wool poncho, i love this piece! i think i'll wear with black skinny jeans and over the knee boots pictured at the bottom.
poncho: jcrew (jcrew no longer has on their site, but found the same thing on ebay)
in case my feet hurt wearing all these heels, animal print flats.
flats: calvin klein (mine are old but here's an updated version)
a lot of these pieces can be worn different ways, which will be good since i normally pack everything except the kitchen sink.
outfit four: paige premium purple jeans, jcrew school boy blazer, old jcrew ruffle front shirt (find similar here)
over the knee boots. i lucked out last year and got these on super, duper clearance at anthro. they are timberland. weird right? timberland boots @ anthro. like i said, i don't necessarily care about brands if i like the look!
boots: timberland (anthro doesn't have these anymore, but i found some on ebay)
and that's it folks. i have no fashion authority, but this is me and what i think i'll be wearing, a little of this, a little of that, some new items, some old, some new items from a second hand store.
